This set collects together inaccessible journal articles and extracts from books to guide the reader to the most important and relevant issues in educational and child development today. Some of the most exciting ideas to influence developmental psychology this century are those of Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky. All developmental psychology courses now include the work of Vygotsky as his ideas challenge existing theorists like Piaget.

Lev Vygotsky: Critical Assessments reveals Vygotsky's ideas about the way children learn and the role of thought and language, and demonstrates the educational implications of his work. Vygotsky's ideas offered an entirely separate and new approach to child development and children's education.

Volume One: Vygotsky's Theory

Volume Two: Thought and Language

Volume Three: The Zone of Proximal Development

Volume Four: Future Directions
